COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - The state's first cyber-security legislation is set to be filed on Wednesday.
The bill proposes to require Governor Nikki Haley to develop a lifetime protection plan with free "identity theft" services for people affected by the security breach at the South Carolina Department of Revenue.
The bill would offer tax credits as a possible way to pay for the nearly 4 million people needing protection after their personal information was compromised during a hack of the SCDOR.
The bill, drawn up by Richland Co. Senator Darrell Jackson, also proposes the creation of a state department of information security.
